Fit Bit (A happy heart is good medicine)
Proverbs 17:22 “ A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
Proverbs 15:13 “A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the Spirit.”
John 10:10 “ The thief comes only to kill and steal and destroy, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Philippians 4:8 “ Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Nehemiah 8:10 “ The Joy of the Lord is your strength”
Today the Sidewalk Profits song “Smile” is running through my head. Its funny, I have a number of things troubling my heart, but still this song is so very loud in me today. I am thankful for that. For me, in order to be healthy and have the energy to do the things I need to do, and be the woman I want to be, I have to start my day in the Joy of the Lord. Its’ a choice. It’s a choice like choosing to eat fruits, veggies and get movement. I can be defeated, or keep on keeping on in Joy. I chose to live life without drugs or alcohol, mainly because I fell down with them and almost completely destroyed my family. Recently a new friend of mine asked me, “ Don’t you just sometimes, want to catch a buzz?” My response is simple, “:I live in a buzz”. I have the joy of the Lord, as my daily buzz. It’s pretty amazing , to feel HIs joy even in sorrow. I hope this little Fit Bit inspires you to let His Holy Spirit fill your heart so you can trust Jesus as your Lord and Savior and feel HIs joy!!! This is truly the only way I know to be healthy in all circumstances.
Be fit and be blessed,
